    The Ideal Children's Ballet, from The Royal Opera House

    Peter and the Wolf, with legendary music by Prokofiev, and choreography by Matthew Hart, is danced by (primarily) students of the Royal Ballet School. The enjoyability of this ballet demands a certain context: if viewed as an intellectual and intricate new story ballet, it falls flat. If viewed as a homey children's ballet, it excels. The most brilliant thing about the production is the music, created by the legendary Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. The choreography is inventive and modern, illustrating the story very well. What makes the production come together is Will Kemp's narration of the human and animal characters (including the different instruments that identify with each character), as well as his role as the grandfather. The wolf is danced by Sergei Polunin. Though not an especially technical role, dramatically, Polunin does it well. The other dancers, students of the Royal Ballet School, are cast and dance so well that at times, it's as if one is viewing the dancers of the Royal Opera House itself. Though minimalistic, the sets and lighting well-suit the ballet, adding to it's homey charm. The ballet is also fairly short, just around a half an hour, another reason why children would love it. The filming is excellent, and if viewed as a children's classic, the ballet is exceptional, if not ideal.

    I'd recommend this to anyone with the desire to step towards bringing the world of ballet to their children, if not for the sake of revisiting their own homey children's tales.
